My first taste of this classic was 5 years ago. A friend of mine ordered it for me and when I tried it, I thought it was the best [alcoholic] drink ever. I am a huge lime fan. Limeade (or lime juice) is one of my favorite drinks so the taste of it mixed with this wonderful almond liqueur made for a very lovely and delicious drink. Yum.
1 1/2 oz amaretto almond liqueur
1 – 2 splashes sweet and sour mix ( I made my own with lime, lemon, sugar and water)
Pour the amaretto liqueur into a cocktail shaker half-filled with ice cubes. Add a splash or two of sweet and sour mix, and shake well. Strain or pour into an old-fashioned glass, garnish with a maraschino cherry and a slice of orange, and serve.
Bye For Now…..
